Olly finished the 2009 series of the X Factor as runner-up.

Since then, he’s had a number of hit songs, such as “Troublemaker”, “Heart Skips a Beat” and “Dear Darling”, and four successive No. 1 Albums.

Olly is the most successful solo artist ever to come from the TV talent show.

Organiser Caroline Strachan said:

“Every year, Sure Big Gig in the Park aims to be at the pulse of pop culture and bring island fans closer to the musicians and experiences they love.

“To see the event come into its eighth year is a fantastic achievement for the team and is great news for the charities involved.

“It is an honour to receive such great support and high attendance which makes it possible to run the Big Gig again this summer.”
